Distressed Tin Can


Hello Friends

I hope you are all well! It has been so long since I last blogged!

I wanted to show you my new project.

Some lovely home decor :)

I was going for a vintage shabby chic look.

 I made this with the new Unity SMAK kit Be You For You

I love everything about this kit!!

I especially LOVE the sentiment I used.


If you know me I love to upcycle things.

 This was an old bean can I was about to throw away.

 I saved it, cleaned it out and painted it white with acrylic paint.

 Once it dried I took a nail file and distressed it.

  Then I made a label to put on the front and put some lovely flowers inside. 

Here is a quick video of how I made it. 





I hope you are inspired to make your own :)
